|Corvette 1968 convertible resto mod. I HAVE $36000 in just parts and bodywork not including the purchase of the car, you cant build the same car for what im selling it for. I bought this car from an old lady in Garden Groove CA in 2011, she blew a radiator hose on the freeway and parked the car in the early -80s. It was a 327 4 speed car. My plan was to build a pro touring, resto mod car. I bought the LS3 in 2011 it was only 3 years old and had only 8k miles. The guy I got it from worked for Synergy Motorsports he built the motor with a custom cam 223/227 610/613 made 470hp and 460tq on the tire with a 6 speed in his Toyota. It was tuned on the dyno. I bough the engine out of his running car. It came with ecm and a stand alone wire harness, Coated headers $700 , dirty dingo motor mounts. Transmission is a Brand new Ultimate fit TKO 600 Vette Deluxe kit 5 speed from Hurst drivelines with the corvette side shifter to place the shifter in the stock position complete with drive shaft. I have more then 10k in the drive line. I took the car to JD Corvette in Bellflower and did a full body restoration all the gaps are perfect. Body is in primer ready to be blocked. I spent 11k on the body work I have receipts for everything.
